Expressing the urgency of his trip, one of the passengers, Abubakar Muhammad, who spoke with Daily Trust, said he ought to be in Lagos for medical screening.

He said, “The delay has caused me a lot of pain.”

Another passenger, Yusuf Sani, expressed his distress over the recurrent delays.

He said: “Last time they also delayed us like this, why would a flight be delayed or rescheduled without proper notice?”
